2010 Detroit: GM to show the smallest GMC ever and a high-performance Buick
This not only makes us media types feel special, it’s a type of insurance that the automaker’s news won’t get lost during the hubbub of the show.
Instead, our colleagues over at CanadianDriver decided to reveal all of GM’s offerings. Some expected, some not so much.
None of this has been confirmed from GM, but apparently we’ll see some expected production versions of the Chevrolet Orlando mini-minivan (above right), Aveo subcompact, Spark city car (above left), a refreshed Malibu and Camaro convertible.
What we didn’t expect was a GMC version of the seven-passenger Orlando, to be dubbed the Graphite and a high-performance Buick Regal GS.
Allegedly, GMC’s smallest vehicle yet will be “targeted to a younger demographic than the Orlando,” and “ has the kind of features that will help GM compete against other urban utilities like the Honda Element, Kia Soul and Nissan Cube.”
As speculated, the Regal sports sedan, just relased at this month’s Los Angeles show, will get a top-line GS model based on the 325 hp Opel Insignia OPC.
Anyway, we’ll get all this sorted by the first media day of the show from Detroit’s Cobo Hall, January 11.
